With medieval towers piercing the clouds and a ton of rocky hills interspersed with lush greens, Edinburgh is a remarkable place, and visiting it must go on your life to-do list.

Things to Do in Edinburgh

From volcanoes to sculptures, there’s a mix of natural beauty and famous relics in Edinburgh. Here are some of the top attractions in the area:

  • Arthur’s Seat – Bet you didn’t know that there were two volcanos in Edinburgh, did you? Arthur’s Seat is the more popular dormant volcano. At 820 feet in height, it offers prime views of the city below.

  • Scottish National Galleries – First opened in 1859, this exquisite neoclassical building is home to hundreds of works of art you won’t see anywhere else.

  • Surgeons’ Hall Museums – Medicine has come a long way in two centuries. If you want to see 19th-century amputation tools, the oldest anesthesia inhaler, and other artifacts, take some time to visit the Surgeons’ Hall Museums.

Best Time to Visit Edinburgh

Most travelers tend to visit Edinburgh during the summer season, when temperatures hover around the 65-degrees mark. Additionally, most of the yearly festivals take place in August, which brings in the summer crowds. However, due to its proximity to the North Sea, winter temperatures aren’t too bad. On average, you won’t encounter anything below 35 degrees.

Most Popular Streets in Edinburgh

Edinburgh is a highly walkable city, so find a good place to park your car rental and lace up those comfy shoes.

  • Royal Mile – It’s the avenue that links the Palace of Holyroodhouse and Edinburgh Castle, with plenty of landmarks along the way (not to mention boutiques and cafes). It’s one of the most popular stretches of road in the city, so be sure to park your Edinburgh car rental when you see a spot and walk down the lane.

  • Princes Street – This 18th-century street was named after King George III’s two sons and is now a hot spot of pubs and shops.

  • Chambers Street – This avenue is where you’ll find a ton of classic structures, like the Old College of the University of Edinburgh (which was built in 1791) and the Talbot Gallery.
